Re: Wakes and the depth gauge

Yeah my depth sounder is behind my keel (not the best place I know)... but turbulence messes with it with lots of wake, or excessive speed. So I suspect that's the reading issue, as long as it settles down after a while.

but yeah take the wakes at 20-30 degrees and it'll be easier on you and the boat. As for the boat taking it, it should NOT be a problem. The Catalina 25 is a tough boat...
